​The Letter

This song is by Hayes Carll and appears on the album KMAG YOYO (& Other American Stories) (2011).

I meet some wild people out here
Those who are pretendin' and others more sincere
A few that outright scare me and ones that I hold dear
I meet some wild people out here

You won't believe the things I have done
Racin' downn the highway like a bullet from a gun
This life is like to kill me but it sure has been fun
You won't believe the things I have done

Birdy says, I outta go home
I swear I tried to reach you but the cop took my phone
Them Tulsa women's nicer when they leave me alone
Birdy says, I outta go home

I don't know how I got this way
Burnin' through my nights and wastin' my days
So many people talking, I forgot what to say
I don't know how I ended this way

I meet some wild people out here, wild people
THose who are pretendin' and others more sincere
A few that outright scare me and ones that I hold dear
I meet some wild people out here
I meet some wild people out here

I hope that you sleep well tonight
Know that I am dreamin' of you, hope you're all right
I'm gunna be there come dawn's early light
I hope that you sleep well tonight
